God said He has written a love letter upon our hearts containing guidance that will lead to our salvation. Does human thinking help us believe this? That God is searching for us and wants to establish a relationship?
We hear Jesus rebuke Peter in today’s Gospel, “Peter you are thinking like a human being thinks not as God does.” Even Peter struggled with human thought and was imprisoned by it.
But there is hope. We can break free and transition to acting and thinking the way Jesus does! We can work to think less as humans in our quest to know and follow Jesus.
